I was a bit embarrassed about being the only visitor at first but the friendliness won me over as did the fascinating exhibits of which there are plenty. I usually get round museums very quickly but I ended up spending a couple of hours.

Visited here today. We found the collection very well laid out lots of interesting information for each car clearly laid out. Motorbike collection too and other motor paraphernalia regarding motoring. Brought back memories of my parents cars that they owned in the past.

Friendly and informative staff, could not be more helpful. You are allowed to get up close and personal with the cars, they just ask you no to touch, understandable! You can move the information stands to take pictures, a real treat of a museum that...More
